Hi I am looking to build my first future build. The idea is that maybe 3 years from now all that i should need to upgrade is the GPU. I game on 2560x1440 and wanted to see what you guys think of this build and if i should go ahead and order it. I dont want to go with AMD or water cooling. Thank you.

Cooler will give you almost same performance but looks way better.
Motherboard has similar set of features but better thermal design.
RAM is lower profile to fit the first slots under the massive cooler.
SSD is pretty fast, and in gaming you wont find any difference between the two.
Better GPU, PSU and a similar case with plenty of airflow.


Note: Intel next gen. product release can happen anytime soon. You might consider waiting a bit or getting AMD for better value...
